Hipstsamatic

Mary Morgan likes a vintage camera app she got for her Android. She's crazy about it, taking pictures of the dog and of me and of herself and everyone we know.

Today I found out about the Levi's Hipstamatic Contest.

Isn't it interesting the ways by which we attempt to imbue our industrial, mass-produced products with auras?

I'm not critical of it at all; in fact, I love the sentiment: make things that are essentially as far away from hand-made as possible look hand-made. Fairly incredible if you think about it.

Though, I will not be buying the app. They should have made it a free thing for a limited time.
